My desire to go on a beach getaway right now is pretty much insufferable…and insatiable.
Can we pleaaaaaase?! I’ll do anythinggggg. Actually, I guess I won’t do a lot of things, but you get it.
We just can’t go right now because life. You know, to do lists and responsibilities and I get it. We have to pay the bills, pay for insurance, pay taxes, build a 401k, save for our potential children’s college funds, save for a home, avoid toll roads because they steal all of our money, buy clothes here and there, eat and the list goes on…
It’s okay. I’ll live, I mean these are good problems to have. I’m well aware. But sometimes you just need a good vacation, ya know?!
So in the midst of me working on contentment and gratitude this year (remember that? That’s a work in progress…) I’ve got this burning desire for rest in the form of my bum on the sand, the sun on my face and the waves at my toes and it won’t go away! UGH!
So instead I’m learning to create space
at home wherever I may be that I can escape in:
Flowers (preferably white tulips or white roses), a yummy candle (smells so good), and Spotify on something smooth and easy.
Wine and a good show or a good book. Currently reading: For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards and What Alice Forgot. Currently watching: Game of Thrones and Bachelor in Paradise.
Making something in the kitchen. I’ll be trying to make some jam shortly (Sam and I are on a jam kick recently): Homemade Apple Pie Jam sounds amazing! Pictured below is this delicious Sriracha Shrimp Stir-Fry.
Taking short social media breaks.
So I’m working on it. 😉 And just for your viewing pleasure. How awesome does Tulum, Mexico look?
